Arsenal are reportedly prepared to reward Kieran Tierney with a bumper five-year contract, should he make the move from Celtic this summer.

The north London outfit are believed to have failed with an opening £15m bid for the left-back and they are now said to be planning a renewed approach for his services.

According to The Sun, the Gunners are optimistic of landing the defender with their second offer and therefore, they are planning to propose terms over a long-term contract.

It is added that he could receive as much as £70,000-a-week in wages which would put him in the same category as the likes of Lucas Torreira and Shkodran Mustafi.

Aside from Tierney, the Gunners are understood to hold a keen interest in landing the signature of Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace despite the hefty £55m price tag placed by Crystal Palace.

The Ivorian has openly admitted that he has the ambition of joining a bigger club and the Gunners appear as one of the front-runners to pursue him, provided they can come close to the Eagles' asking price.
